If Najib quits as PM today ...

"... dan semua orang sudah lupakan kejadian (Hishammuddin) melambaikan keris 10 tahun lalu." - Merdeka Centre survey
If Najib Razak quits today, his cousin Hishammuddin Hussein, the Defence Minister and an Umno vice president, would be the people's No 1 choice as successor. Ot at least that's what the findings of the Merdeka Centre's latest survey say (Ramai rakyat Malaysia mahu Hishammuddin sebagai PM, menurut kajian - TMI, 11 March). 
I don't think one can argue that much with the survey's findings. Hisham has been most savvy in building up his image to his fellow Malaysians. He's not only youthful, popular with both the guys and the gals regardless of race and class, he's also very hardworking. He's cultivated the adulation of some mainstream editors and there's an army of social media practitioners who are said to be at his beck and call, reminiscent of Anwar Ibrahim when he was Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad's powerful deputy. 
Likewise, KJ: the Sports and Youth Minister, whose communications team comprises strategic thinkers who are blessed with a boss who himself is a great PR for himself. KJ, like it or not, has been seen by and large to have done and said the right things by the people, esp the youths.  
BUT lets' get one thing clear, Dear Readers: nobody's resigning. The Merdeka Centre's survey was carried out at the wake of calls made by some bloggers and politicians, urged on by exposes in their villain-turned-hero the Sarawak Report, (Taib the target before, Najib the target now, The Mole, March 12) that Najib should step aside (or step down) over a range of alleged wrongdoings, from  1MDB to his wife's hairdo. 
That's not going to happen. Two reasons: 
One, the UMNO leaders are solidly behind their President. If they had wanted to send Najib to pasture, they would have done so last November at the party's annual assembly. Last week, after an extended series of attacks on their Boss, the party leaders met to listen to his brief on 1MDB and other matters, and are satisfied that the issue is being used as a political weapon to attack Najib; and
Two, a special task force has been set up to look into the allegations. The Attorney-General, the Accoutant-General, the police, and the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission are all on that Committee. The Auditor-General, who has exposed without fear or favour many irregularities and abuses in government, including the NFC scandal, which is an on-going court battle, is also in the picture. 
Jazlan: "More Oppo than Oppo"
Last but not least, the PAC led by NurJazlan Tok Mat will also have a go at the 1MDB. As one YAB told me two nights ago, "Jazlan is more Opposition than Opposition. If Najib had made a hole in there (1MDB), he will use Najib to plug that hole."  
Ah, but I've digressed. 
Back to the survey. Like all surveys, this Merdeka Centre's survey is flawed. For one, it didn't have a single candidate from Sabah/Sarawak for the respondents to pick. It has also totally isolated the non-Melayus. 
For more kepincangan and hidden agenda, read Helen Ang's Portal paling pro-Kristians sengaja kenakan Muhyiddin dan Mukhriz (12 March) 

p.s. Me, I have published my view on why Hisham (and a few others) SHOULD NOT BE the next Prime Minister of this country in KJ, DPM? (16 Oct 2014).

I don't think Hisham can be a good PM. Muhyiddin is the best candidate, perhaps better than Najib.

Salam Bro,aku sokong kenyataan Anon 10:19.Muhyiddin paling layak menggantikan Najib sekiranya Najib berundur.

Agreed with your findings... Merdeka surveys for me is a flawed and more to feed the current leaders; Read Umno lackey....

Pandangan aku pula :-

1. Bila buat "survey" ketelusan dan keikhlasan mesti berlandaskan kriteria ambilan yang cukup melibatkan yang celik politik kerajaan, koporat dan swasta. Kemudian ia mesti berimbang dengan suara majoriti. Akhir nya pandangan dari rakyat secara menyeluruh.

Kadangkala "survey" yang di buat boleh sahaja menimbulkan persepsi dan membina pengaruh yang boleh sahaja mengubah keputusan memilih.

2. Dalam barisan politik Najib, majoriti yang kanan, semua nya "yes boss!" Secara mutlak tiada yang berkemampuan menjadi Pemimpin ganti No. 1. Dalam kemelut sekarang, mana karakter politik sebenar yang boleh "membetulkan keadaan?" Jika kita sebut Hishamuddin, setakat mana pembuktian nya ? Menjulang keris, kemudian kuncup ekor ? Pendekar Melayu bukan berjiwa mengundur ! Jiwa Melayu itu pantang berundur dan bila sanggup sangat menjual, akan di sambut dengan membeli ! Ini semua berpijak di atas kebenaran. KJ masih sibuk dengan belia/beliawanis dan sehingga kini KPI nya tahap mana ? Pengundi muda masih di monopoli pembangkang. Pengundi berumur belum tentu memilih KJ kerana sikap nya belum ingin menjadi matang...

3. TPM Muhyiddin masih di selaputi dilemma. Buat salah, tidak buat juga salah. Kenyataan berapi hanya sesekali, tetapi padam begitu sahaja. Natijah nya Melayu sentiasa hilang pergantungan ! Politik baru PM Najib tidak lain memeningkan kepala, bertindak hanya dalam kerangka. Kini Pembangkang sudah memonopoli sehingga ke White House ! Kebodohan apa politik Umno kian hilang punca kerana kawasan selalu di ceroboh ! Walhal ada tanda larangan "penceroboh akan di tembak" atau "awas pagar letrik!" Kini rumah Umno di cat, di conteng sesuka hati oleh penceroboh..

Iktibar nya :- PM Najib mesti segera bertindak agresif. Membetulkan semula kemelut di mana sebahagian nya bukan atas kehendak beliau( saya tidak bersangka buruk kerana seorang beramanah dan bermandat tinggi sudah tentu sahaja wajib menjaga rakyat dan negara nya atas platfom politik yang sudah membina Malaysia dari tiada kepada ada.

Jika PM Najib gagal melestarikan apa sahaja wawasan beliau dalam tempoh terdekat, masih keliru, masih mengharap pembangkang berpolitik sihat dalam keterbukaan beliau, masih memberi "tali" dan masih mengejar bayang negara maju berpendapatan tinggi di atas kesedaran ekonomi yang di kawal satu pihak, ia tidak akan terjadi dalam keadasn "tersalah langkah"

Ketika ini saya masih mengharapkan PM Najib madih boleh menjadi Pemimpin No 1 Malaysia yang di hormati jika beliau patuh kepada karakter dan syarat-syarat Pemimpin berwibawa. Masakan kuah tumpah di pakaian!

Letak jawatan atau sebalik nya, bergantung kepada hutang negara kini yang mencecah 60% KDNK yang mesti di baik pulih dengan segera. Nilai matawang kita sudah jatuh di bawah nilai Thailand. Penyeludupan dan rasuah berleluasa tanpa batas di tambah kemungkaran dan maksiat yang kini menjadi senjata musuh yang sangat ampuh melemahkan Najib.

I think that mata sepet Melayu-wannabe Helen Ang is spinning badly, as always.

If the survey was rigged by TMI (which is blatantly pro-PR), then surely Al-Juburi's name would have been in the mix. But it wasn't. So of the names not listed, Moohideen dapat 1.0%, and Al-Juburi a crappy 0.7% (Padan muka.) That means neither of them is very top-of-mind for respondents.

There was no fix.

"Hole-In-The-Head" Ang, lu mahu jadi Melayu so desperately, please get some integrity (and double eyelids.)

Not an 'Indonesian First' PM for Malaysia ! Or may be it is time for Malaysia and Indonesia become one country !
After all Malaysia is what Indonesia once was, they too had oil, Casinos and horse racing not do long ago. Now that all these are just memories and where is the country now. Like wise very soon the black gold in Malaysia, it will be a question of time before Genting, at best, will be just a recreation centre. All the haram activities will be banned,
Genting must be aware that will happen to them someday soon and that is why they are in Singapore, Star Cruise.At the same time trying to be in many other foreign countries.
What is going to all the revenues going to come from to Malaysia.
All the scandals that are being revealed now Malaysia will undoubtedly become another Greece in this part of the world. What a bloody shamble under Umno since independen. !
Will there be any one fighting to become to be the PM of Malaysia ?

Hishammuddin kerispondanmudin? Yes! Yes! Every ministry he holds have real deep problem. When he holds ministry of youth and sports , look what happened to the youth and our sports? ; when he holds, defence ministry, look how many issues raised to the county ; when he holds ministry of internal affair (home minister), what trouble he has created...he will be good and performed well when he is the minister for women affairs.. as a pm...? omg! Please don't make this happened!!

Higham - he may have done relatively well in handling the MH370 briefings. But to handle A COUNTRY with all the intricacies and permutations regarding race, religion, the economy, security etc... Sorry, I have little confidence. And I know many have similar feelings.

By the way, many don't have much confidence in Merdeka's polls either. From previous ones, there often seems to an element of deceit, with the proponents trying to pursue some agenda and hiding behind the skirt of "public polls".

The poll must have included a lot of cow-head protestors.

There is a picture of Him leading the pack.

Bravo saudara maee yg beri komen yang berasas...kandungan komennya walaupun ada juga kritikan dalam masa sama turut beri langkah yang perlu diambil oleh Dato Sri Najib untuk kekal berkuasa.

Kini terpulang pada Dato Sri Najib sendiri samada ingin terus memerintah diselubungi isu ataupun segera terjaga lena, bangkit dengan semangat baru untuk memimpin negara dgn penuh bijaksana dan berhemah kerana kuasa ada padanya.
